The Seventh Day

The Bible tells us clearly that the Sabbath is the seventh day of the week. In the western world, we call this day Saturday. Actually, the concept of the weekly cycle came from the first week in history, the Creation week, which consists of seven days, including the day of rest. God set apart the last day of every week as the Sabbath.

From the time of their forefathers, the Israelites have acknowledged that Saturday is the Sabbath. The Lord Jesus kept the seventh-day Sabbath; and so did his disciples.

God never commanded Sunday worship. It is man-made. It was the Roman Emperor Constantine who officially changed the day of rest from Saturday to Sunday. Today, it has become a widespread tradition in Christendom.

Since God did not change the Sabbath day, we should still keep the Sabbath on Saturday, the seventh day, rather than on Sunday, the first day. Our Lord Jesus Christ did not do away with Sabbath observance. Being one of the Ten Commandments, the Sabbath is still a day that all Christians must keep. Blessed are those who hold true to God's commandments!
